This soon to be released research provides a comprehensive look into the key challenges faced by today’s leaders and how the demands on leadership development practices have changed over the past decade.

Wellness in the Workplace: Focusing on Mental Fitness

A focus on positive mental health has the ability to increase a person's capacity for enjoyment and to better react to everyday challenges. Promoting the use of positive mental health and strength-based approaches in the workplace involves not only shifting attitudes and beliefs about people, but also reframing the way we communicate, interact and work with others. When such methods are applied, emerging issues or problems become opportunities for pursuing positive and healthy change. Promoting well-being and positive mental health can be achieved through focusing on a concept called mental fitness. Mental fitness has been defined as a psychological state that can be achieved through the following three needs: Relatedness: Reciprocity and relationships. Our need for connection to family, peers, and other significant individuals. Competency: Recognizing and using our gifts and strengths in achieving our personal goals. Autonomy: Being active participants in making choices that affect our lives.

Domestic Violence and the Role of the Employer

Recent cases involving high profile public figures and professional athletes have brought increased awareness to the prevalence and impact of domestic violence. The Canadian Women's Foundation has reported that 3,300 women are forced out of their homes on any given night due to domestic violence, a startling fact that has wide implications for both individuals physical and mental health. And while we typically think of domestic violence as taking place in the home, it all too often spills into other areas of a victim’s life, be it school, in the community, or the workplace. There have been terrible tragedies involving victims who have been killed while at work stemming from a domestic violence issue. Two cases in particular have brought more awareness to the roles and responsibilities of employers when they become aware of an issue of domestic violence issue: Lori Dupont in Ontario was killed by her intimate partner (who worked with her) while at work in a Windsor Hospital in 2005 Tony McNaughton who was killed in 2000 at a Starbucks in Vancouver when trying to intervene to protect a victim of domestic violence at work Workplaces can play a pivotal role in supporting and in some cases, protecting victims of domestic violence. But when should the workplace step in? And what type of support should be ready to make available to employees when they need it the most?

Improving Mental Health at Work: The National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace

Without a doubt, mental health is a significant business issue that requires attention. Organizations have an important role to play in creating the conditions in which employees experiencing mental health issues can work more productively -- having a positive impact on the employee, other staff, and the business as a whole. In an effort to build mentally health workplaces, The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) has developed the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. The Standard is a voluntary set of guidelines, tools and resources focused on promoting employees' mental health and preventing potential harm. While the response to this initiative has been positive, some organizations are still unsure as to what steps they need to take in order to implement these standards in their workplace. To provide guidance, the MHCC, along with the Canadian Standards Association and the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace, have developed Assembling the Pieces: An Implementation Guide to the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. This practical, hands-on guide has been created to assist organizations in navigating the wealth of information the Standard has to offer, and is designed to support organizations from the planning stages through to full implementation.

Waking Up: The Real Risks of Fatigue in the Workplace

Virtually every employee experiences some level of fatigue on the job from time to time. However, many individuals believe that they can adapt to chronic sleep loss or that a single, extended sleep episode will compensate for it. This is not the case. Excessive fatigue, and the resulting decrease in alertness, can negatively impact an employee's reaction time and lead to reduced vigilance, reduced decision-making ability, poor judgment, distraction during complex tasks, and loss of awareness in critical situations. Excessive fatigue can also hamper an employee's health and reduce his or her productivity at work. Employers are becoming increasingly aware of, and concerned about, the direct costs and risks of fatigue in the workplace. In response, the Conference Board's Health and Safety Leadership Centre has undertaken a research study which examines some of the strategies and leading practices currently in place in Canadian organizations to manage fatigue in the workplace. The research also put a particular focus on strategies and practices that are in place to manage more complex work situations including, for example, remote work sites, extensive shift work, and safety-sensitive industries.
